Not to worry, they aren't squirrels

I don't understand why this is news.

Bears in a residential neighborhood? Positively unheard of!

AllenS said...

From the New Richmond, WI news:

For most people the sight of a bear is something they only experience in a zoo. But that was not the case this last weekend when a black bear was spotted in a neighborhood behind Hudson High School.

Hudson is on freeway 94, right before you cross into MN.

The only way to escape maurading bears would be to move to the Arctic where all the bears will be gone next weekend.

By gone, I mean dead, dead, dead.

As my whimsy leads me.. said...

I can bear-ly take it all in!

The Packers and the Bears will always clash in southern Wisconsin.

Move along, nothing to see here.

Hello please.

I am telling you what it is that is giving me the anger this morning. It is the fat American womans and their pretending to have a diets.

I was earlier in my employers coffee room and a valued co-worker was putting a tuppersware of cut up fruits into the referigerator. I said "Ah, valued co-worker! You are bringing the dessert for today's luncheon meeting!"

And she says "Ha ha, Mr. V. S. Gupta! You are the funnay! This is my snack, I am on the diet." "Well then, so very good for you" I said, while thinking in my head "Holy elephants of Mumbai, this woman is snacking on bushel basket of fruit."

I might have not been correct in my thinking so I said "An excellent plan, valued co-worker, to bring a seek's worth of the snacks in one container. Verry smart you are."

Then she says "No, Gupta, this is just for today, It's only fruit and the fruit doesn't have much calories."

What is this shit? Why do the fat American womans think this?

Not much calories? Maybe an apple or an orange, but a watermelon and a dozen peaches and a couple of kiwi fruits?

I'm thinking that this has many, many calories. And these many, many calories will join the calories already living on her thighs and ass cheeks.

Not one week since I have become employed by this excellent State Street bank hasn't a fat valued co-worker lady asked me "Mr. V. S. Gupta, you are so lean, what is it the diet plan that you follow please?"

I say "I do not follow aq diet plan. I practise the Don't Eating."

"The what plan?"

"I practise the don't eating everything I see plan." It works, just have you a look at me", I says, always wanting to be of support and teamworkiness to my valued co-workers.

All the time they are looking at me saying then "That doesn't sound like a good idea. A person could get sick by not eating."

So I am saying "Ah yes, you are very smartness." And I am getting so much the angers about the fat womans! Always they talk talk talk about the diet, but never they talk about the not eating everything in the 3 kolometer radius! This is shit!

That is what is giving me the anger this morning.

As long as they're not gathering material for a book about me, it's cool.

Last summer, my son and daughter worked as tour guides in Juneau, Alaska. My son's apartment (which he shared with several other tour guides) was in downtown Juneau at the top of one of Juneau's side streets that are in reality nothing more than a staircase. (Just 173 steps up from Juneau's main drag.) The apartment backed up onto a patch of salmon berry bushes. Bears love salmon berries and my son loved to step out onto their deck to watch and take pictures of "Bruno", a young bear who adopted the patch as his own during the salmon berry season.

That was all fine until, at the end of the salmon berry season, Bruno tried to follow one of the guides into the apartment. Two of his roommates tried to close the door while Bruno pushed against it from outside. Bruno must have been only mildly curious (or he didn't understand how doors work), because he could have easily overpowered the two puny humans in a contest of strength. After about 30 seconds, Bruno abandoned his attempt and they never saw him again.

My wife thought that was too much nature for our son.

There's a bear in the back yard. For some people, the bear is easy to see. Others don't see it at all. Some people say the bear is tame. Others say it's vicious and dangerous. Since no one can really be sure who's right, isn't it smart to be as strong as the bear? If there is a bear.

How is Algoma southern Wisconsin? Jeeze.

Scott said...

In New Jersey, you can't get a permit to shoot the bears. You have to reason with them.

I wish PETA would teach them how to use condoms.

ironrailsironweights said...

You can find bears in many urban neighborhoods too.

Well, there is the photo of the one in Waunakee.

That photo is kinda scary, BTW. I hope it was shot with a telephoto lens, 'cause otherwise I don't think those two should be doing what it looks like they're doing.

So they don't just sh*t in the woods.

Now THAT will take a big plastic bag

Big Mike said...

Hey! Bears need to eat, too.

miller said...

I guess it's kinda weird to see a black bear with human kids about 20 feet away.

Do they realize that bears can kill them?

We have bears in our town. Almost every year a mother bear brings her cubs down to the river at the highway crossing, maybe to feed on berries or catch trout or salmon. I don't know which or why, but I do know they block off the highway and don't let anyone near her. Everyone knows that bears can kill you or your kids, and they don't care if you are just trying to take their picture.

I am surprised that no one has written the usual, "It's because we are encroaching on their land maaaaannnn....to many humans....suburban sprawl" or some sort of BS.

Fred4Pres said...

You think that is bad, at least Wisconsin still have a lot of rural areas, I know people who have those big black squirrels knocking over their bird feeders in New Jersey.

Oh, you mean actual bears. Not hairy gay men.

Leather Daddy said...

I was promised pictures of Bears in backyards. And once again, Ann has disappointed with a misleading post.

Jane said...

It's time to train the bears to fear man.

There have been several bear sightings in Eau Claire, Wis. over the last few weeks. I'm not sure what's driving it.

Farther north, where my parents live, their neighbor thinks it's cute and puts out food for them so their grandkids can see them.

It'll be the last thing they see.
